What are red color depositing shampoos?

Red color depositing shampoos naturally deposit color in red hair without the use of permanent dyes.

If you’re a natural redhead, you can add red depositing shampoo to your beauty routine a few times a week. Great for natural reds who are experiencing natural fading and want to “up” their red.

If you’re a redhead ‘by choice’, use this regularly to enhance red tones in the hair.

It’s important to know some key tips and facts before opting for a color depositing product. Here are 7 things you should know: 

1. If you’re a redhead ‘by choice’, consult with your stylist or colorist before using it.

2. Color depositing shampoo and conditioners do not work for blonde or grey shades of hair. Warning: If you have blonde highlights in your red hair, using these products will turn them pink.

3. Rinse your hair after conditioning with cool water. This will help close the cuticle and seal in moisture.

4. The product may stain so use a dark towel (or t-shirt) while drying your hair.

5. If you’re nervous to take the color depositing plunge, we recommend adding a few drops to your currently used shampoo and conditioner. This is a great way to ‘up’ your red a tiny bit.

6. We advise conducting a strand test before using one of these products below.

7. For best results, lather on a color depositing shampoo. Rinse. Apply and lather a color depositing conditioner. Rinse with cool water.
